($50) Bright red. Assertively perfumed, spicy nose features bright raspberry and cherry scents accented by orange peel and incense. Soft and sappy, offering energetic red berry flavors, silky texture and impressive mineral lift. Becomes more tangy on the finish, which delivers solid flavor punch with no loose ends or excess fat. The vibrancy of the fruit here is striking.
